OFFER DESCRIPTION

This is a full-time position, which is to be filled by January 15th, 2021. We will welcome applicants with a Master’s degree pursuing a Ph.D. degree. The position is limited to the duration of the qualification procedure in the field of knowledge graphs with the EU project KnowGraphs. Depending on the previous qualification, the position is to be filled for a period of usually 3 years. Your salary will range between ca. 12,000 and 13,000€ per year.

Your core duties and responsibilities are to perform research on efficient management systems for knowledge graphs for provenance data. Provenance is crucial to determine accountability, transparency and trust among the involved agents. To this day, provenance management is not efficient as (1) provenance is encoded as data and handled as such and (2) models for data provenance are intrinsically complex. The purpose of your thesis will be the development of efficient approaches to provenance management by designing and implementing appropriate data structures and algorithms for managing provenance for KGs. Moreover, you are expected to participate actively in the research project.
